U.S. Youth National Teams

Klinsmann's son called into U.S. Under-15 camp


When the U.S. Under-15 boy's national team convened a camp at Home Depot Center on Sunday, there was one familiar name among the group.

Jonathan Klinsmann. Yes, it's Jurgen's son.

The younger Klinsmann is a goalkeeper in the 36-player camp, a week-long event U.S. Soccer uses to identify top youth talent.

Here is the full camp roster, which features three members of the New York Red Bulls Academy, and players from six other MLS academies:

    Anyone know if they still do that two year full time residency program in Florida for U-17s?

    WTF? USSF is finalizing citizenship for him but won’t do anything for Fagundez? I smell agenda


  • Kojo

    It’s official Jonathan Klinsman is called into camp because the Senior National Team Manager is sleeping with his Mom. It’s coming out in the next edition of News of the World. Gotta love the English press they are so on top of these things.

    How many current USMNT players played USMNT U15 or U16 and came up through this process? Does anyone know or is there information on this?


  • Paul Thomas

    Clearly you have not experienced the sheer… ennui that is Bobby Crosby as your starting shortstop…

    When I read the part about Shaq’s son being a small point guard as a comparison to Jurgen’s son as a gk, I bursted out in a heavy laughter… hahaha +1
